Energy and Water Minister Arthur Nazarian said Thursday that Lebanon would enjoy three hours of extra electricity in a few months after 270-MW power plants are built. Speaking at a news conference with Electricite du Liban Chairman Kamal Hayek, the minister stressed, however, that Cabinet needs to put in place a serious and long-term strategy for the electricity sector in Lebanon that puts citizens' interests above political ones. Nazarian gave details about the progress on the country's power plants, calling the emergency plan put in place by the previous government for the sector "transparent," but saying it does not go far enough.Nazarian and Hayek both stressed that the government's "emergency plan" must be implemented to improve the chronic situation for the short-term electricity situation.
